Backpack game carrier

I am looking to convert my kelty backpack to carry elk quarters. Does anybody know where I can get a fold out shelf that I can attach to the frame. Any suggestions would be appreciated. thanks

Maybe check out Kifaru. I think there's are called Cargo Chair. You'd just have to do a tiny bit of modifing.

I made a freighter pack from an old external frame pack. I just used thin plywood for the shelf and clipped it to the frame with "one-hole" conduit clamps and carriage bolts with wing nuts. I used cable to attach the back of the shelf to the top of the frame but I think I would use nylon strap if I did it again. It doesn't look pretty but it works fine. You'll want a good padded hip belt or it may be a painful process.
